Desegregation, Culturalism and Humanism.
Mohr, Paul, Ed.
The multicultural education statement of the Multicultural Education Commission of the American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE), "No One Model American," provides an impetus for much of the discussion in this selection of essays. The Brown I and Brown II court decisions escalated concerns as to how one person interacts with another in an institutional setting such as the school. Emerging from these landmark decisions were policies that had impact on the curricula, the faculty, the staff, and the students of the public school system. Recognizing that 21 years of trial and error in implementing school desegregation has produced limited results, two public school superintendents attempt to dramatize in essay form the need for a continuous concern relative to curricular and personnel policies that facilitate school desegregation. The emergence of plural diversity enlarged the concerns of educators and brought into focus such assumptions as presented in the essay here on "Multi-Ethnic Understanding." Comments on the AACTE's multicultural education statement are expressed in "Is the Glass Half-Empty or Half-Filled?" Finally, the totality of freeing individuals to realize their potential is broached in "Humanism and the Classroom Teacher." (MM)
